This is one of the oldest songs in the world, and nevertheless, one of the greatest.
I don't think there is one person that hasn't heard "Hello" by Lionel Richie once in his or her life!
Some would say that is a song for the lonely ones, some would say is a love song or ballad...
The song was number one in the United Kingdom and was released in 1984.
The song was the third single from Richie's multi-platinum album titled "Can't Slow Down".
The song peaked at the first position on three Billboard music charts: the Pop chart for two weeks, the R&B chart for three weeks, and the Adult Contemporary chart for a staggering six weeks.
The story from "Hello" is that Lionel fell in love with an art blind student, that he found out later that was also in love with him...perfect situation for a relationship and for the most wonderful song.
Richie's version of "Hello" has also been featured in some movies like "Scary Movie 4" (2006), "Are We Done Yet?" (2007) or "Shrek Forever After" (2010).
Richie's single was reenacted by several bands and artists throughout time. This song has a chord progression of Am9—Cmaj7/G—Fmaj7—C6/G—Fmaj7, the song is written in the key of A minor, although the chorus is in D melodic minor.
So if you have a falling in love situation, or just a moment you want to take and remember the old good times, accompanied by an astronomic voice, this would be the perfect song to express your feelings or just to relax you.
The song has a track length of 4 minutes and 11 seconds. It was released under the umbrella of Motown.
It was written by Lionel Richie himself. It was produced by him, along with the help of the famous James Anthony Carmichael.
